Work in Progress: In Search of the Old Ones

September 21, 2013

I would have to go and change my mind about these pieces. I had an idea and just had to follow it through to see where it would lead.photo-11

I’m mostly happy with it but am still thinking about the upper right side of the horizontal piece. I don’t want to stitch in the trees and background but am not sure what to do with it.photo-12

This is when it’s a good time to set it aside for a little bit and let it rest. When things get to this stage and I push through I often regret my design choices. The art usually turns out better when it I have time to ponder various scenarios.photo-13

    I love what you have created! The box canvas adds to the feeling of cliff dwelling. I fell in love with Kokopelli. His form and his lore made me smile. http://www.indigenouspeople.net/kokopelli.htm Perhaps continuing the cliff dwellings with a faint outlines of the buildings on the right. Nothing bold, just a hint of what continues on. Just a thought. 🙂

    Lovely, lovely! If the trees bother you, can you photoshop a small piece of rockface and stitch it over the offending part? Just a thought …

    I really like this direction. somehow it helps to make the connection to the people when you see the petroglyphs alongside their homes.
    I don’t have a solution to the upper right bit other than thinking you might audition the idea of more of the figures over the rock/trees as if they were swarming down into the valley. But perhaps they would need to be small figures for the perspective to work. I will be interested to see where you go with it.
